President-elect Joe Biden has named campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon deputy chief of staff.

The Democratic operative worked on both Obama presidential runs. Prior to joining Team Biden in March, Dillon helmed the campaign of Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke’s bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Dillon, a co-founder of Precision Strategies in Washington, is the only woman to lead a winning Democratic presidential campaign.

Reportedly, she had no desire to serve in the new administration but will now work closely with Ron Klain, the president-elect's chief of staff.

Biden also named Julie Rodriguez, a deputy campaign manager, head of the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs.

She was an aide to VP-elect Kamala Harris.
